What happens in the bedroom doesn’t have to stay in the bedroom.

A refreshingly open and uplifting romantic comedy about friendship, love and sex. Sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone in order to give a relationship a good dose of TLC…

Sex therapist Annie Hall helps couples put the fizz back into their relationships. It’s a shame her own love life is non-existent. When Jamie who works next door catches her eye, she can’t ignore the spark of chemistry.

Most men would jump at the chance to skive off work for an afternoon quickie with their gorgeous wife, but Nick knows Julia is after only one thing – a baby. Sex shouldn’t be a chore. Can Annie help Julia see that?

Newly engaged Zoe and Simon can’t keep their hands off each other. They’ve decided to take a vow of celibacy until their wedding night. Will Annie help them stick to it?

Ray and Linda have been married for over thirty years but she’s more interested in the family business than getting intimate with him. Can Annie convince Linda to rediscover her passion for Ray after all this time?

While Annie begins to work her magic with the three couples, she soon discovers that she’ll need to take some of her own advice if she’s going to let a new man into her life.

Thank you to Bookouture for accepting my review request via Netgalley. I requested this book so long ago and I’m so sad that I took so long to read it. I hadn’t read any of Sophie’s books before but I was drawn in by the cover and blurb.

This book follows sex therapist Annie Hall. Annie is great at fixing everyone else’s love lives but she is a disaster with her own. After what happened in her last relationship she decided to focus on her work instead, that is until Jamie comes along.

Jamie works in one of the other rooms in the building Annie leases for work. They regularly see each other in the common areas and secretly Annie thinks he’s quite a looker. But after last time she’s not sure she’s ready to go there again. Fixing her patient’s lives is much less risky.

I loved all of Annie’s patients but by far my favourite couple was Simon and Zoe. They were so in love and so open to anything it was very refreshing.

I loved that this book was set in Norwich. I live in Ipswich which is pretty close so I could recognise some of the local area’s in the book. This can really help with visualising scenes.

I found Sophie’s writing witty and addictive. I found it really difficult to put this book down. I have another book of Sophie’s and I’m really hoping I can fit it in soon because if it’s anywhere near as good as this one I know I’m going to love it.

Sophie has very quickly become one of my favourite writers and I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more of her books.
